A 14-8 win over Cherry Creek earned Mountain Vista the right to be named the No. 1 team in the Class 5A CHSAANow.com boys lacrosse rankings this week.

The Golden Eagles were able to ride that momentum to wins over Lewis-Palmer and Chaparral, solidifying their spot as the new top team in the class.

The Bruins fell one spot to No. 2.

After falling out of the rankings last week, Rock Canyon is back in the mix, coming in at No. 10. They are the only newcomer to this week's 5A poll.

The Dawson School still looks like the favorite in 4A and the Mustangs held on to their spot at the top of the rankings.

Confier was able to get a 14-13 win over Windsor to jump up to No. 3 this week. As a result, Cheyenne Mountain is the new No. 2 team in the poll.

A big win over Pueblo West helped Air Academy jump to No. 5 ahead of a big showdown with Cheyenne Mountain this week.

St. Mary's is the only new team in the rankings as they come in at No. 10.
